In her show notes, Vivienne Tam described this collection as “an ode to modern Shanghai.” But, except for a couple of literal references — the city’s skyline and the traditional image of a Chinese girl printed on two tops — the lineup featured an urban, international feel.

The Arts and Crafts movement inspired lotus flowers that embellished feminine, cutout embroidered pieces, including an A-line sleeveless top paired with a skater skirt and a see-through minidress. A black-and-white abstract line print added a graphic touch to a buttonless little jacket with matching culottes. The collection also included silk and organza asymmetric gowns with origamilike folds.
